Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Do house cleaners offer remote or virtual services?

House cleaning is generally done in person, but some may be willing to offer remote services. If you find a house cleaner’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, contact the pro to talk about your options. 

If you’d rather hire a house cleaner to clean your home when the pandemic is over, you may be able to book an appointment at a later date. Start by comparing local house cleaners in your area side-by-side.

How much does it cost to deep clean a house?

Deep cleaning a house goes beyond the surface level to clear out the dust, grime and gunk that’s collecting on the fan blades, hiding in the blinds, and built up inside the refrigerator drawers. Deep cleaning of a home or apartment costs more than regular house cleaning because it takes more time, effort, and cleaning products. You may choose to have a deep cleaning once or several times a year in addition to your standard cleaning services. You may have a one-time deep cleaning to prepare for company or to clean after a house party. Companies may charge an hourly rate or a price per square foot, or may offer you a flat rate after they have visited your home and estimated work time. The national average house cleaning price is $110-$150, with rates ranging higher for deep-cleaning services. Here are some examples of how a company may calculate their deep-cleaning prices:

  • 10 cents per square foot (compared with 5 cents per square foot for standard house cleaning).
  • $300 for a 3,000-square-foot home.
  • $25 per hour per worker for deep-cleaning services.

What should I ask a house cleaner or maid before hiring them?

There are many questions to ask a cleaning service before you hire them to make sure they’re the right fit. These questions might include:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How do you set your prices -- per hour or per square foot? Or, do you charge a flat rate?
  • What is your past work experience? Can I see a list of references?
  • Are you accustomed to working with different home or apartment types and sizes?
  • Can you work with children or pets in the house?
  • What types of cleaning products do you use?
  • Do you bring your own cleaning supplies and products?
  • How often can you clean my home?
  • Is there anything you recommend I do (or don't do) to my home before you arrive?

What is included in a deep house cleaning vs. a basic house cleaning?

A basic house cleaning typically includes tasks like carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes. A deep house cleaning is a much more involved process, where all aspects of the home are given full attention for a cleanout. In a deep house cleaning, the cleaners will wet-wipe everything from door frames to light switch plates, making sure to also clean walls, windows, air vents, ceiling fans, furniture and more.

Should I hire a move-out cleaning service or do it myself?

You may benefit from hiring a professional move-out cleaning service, depending on your budget, time frame and whether you will be getting a deposit back. Hiring a cleaning service takes the stress out of your move. But if you’ve had your house regularly deep-cleaned, or if your landlord will charge you for cleaning anyway, you can save costs by DIY-ing it.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

Generally, getting your house cleaned professionally can take several hours. The time it takes for house cleaners to complete their job depends on the size of your home, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you have, the type of service you require and the condition of your house. It also might depend on how many employees are cleaning and the supplies they are using. If you get recurring cleaning services, the first visit might take a bit longer than the subsequent visits. 

When choosing the best house cleaner for you, ask for an estimate about how long their services will take.

How much is a house cleaning?

The national average cost for house cleaning ranges between $25 and $50 per hour, per cleaner. However, the cost of house cleaning services near you might be different.

House cleaning prices vary based on how many square feet your home is, how dirty your house gets and how often the cleaning service comes. And, prices can be lower in areas with a lower cost of living, higher in big cities or affluent regions.

Some companies charge a set amount — such as 5 cents — per square foot, with a minimum amount, such as $100. You may save money by increasing the frequency of your house cleaning visits. Often a company will charge you less per cleaning when you schedule more cleanings per month. The cost advantage rewards your loyalty, and also reflects the fact that more frequent cleanings make it easier to maintain a high level of cleanliness in your home. A housecleaning service may charge more for the first visit or for one-time services than for recurring cleanings.

How do I choose the best house cleaning service?

When searching for the best house cleaning service near you, consider the depth of your cleaning needs, your budget and the size and condition of your home. Read reviews from verified customers of any cleaning service that you’re looking to hire. Also, check out the reviewers’ photos and do background checks on reviewers to ensure they’re not employed by established cleaning firms or maid agencies. 

When viewing house cleaners on Thumbtack, you might see a Top Pro badge. This indicates that the service is one of the most popular and highly-rated professionals using the platform.

How do I prepare for a house cleaner?

There are several things you can do in preparation for a house cleaning to improve the efficiency and quality of the job. If you’re unfamiliar with a cleaning service, hiding and locking away any obvious valuables lying around can offer great peace of mind.

Depending on the preference of the cleaner, you may need to lock up your pets before the cleaners arrive. Washing dishes and decluttering the house allows a house cleaner to do their job more effectively. And leaving special notes for the cleaners about certain areas in your home that need attention is also helpful.

Ask house cleaners near you about their tips to help you prepare for their services. 

How much should you tip maids or cleaning services?

Tipping between 15 and 20 percent is considered an appropriate tip for maids and house cleaners — just as it would with a barber, food delivery driver or taxi operator. During the holidays, you might want to consider tipping a bit more. 

It’s important to note that some housekeeping and maid services might include a tip within the service fee, which should be explained to you in the service contract. Talk to house cleaners in your area to find out what's included in their fees.

Completely deep-cleaned a house that hadn't been cleaned for months, helped organize a lot, got me dug out from under a job too big to do alone, and the price was shockingly low. Thanks a lot!

They did an amazing job with the cleaning. I ended up having an emergency with my dog and needed to leave the house. They were very understanding and finished the job and locked my house for me no questions asked. I’m even looking into having them come regularly! Strongly recommend.

Dora provided great cleaning service for our apartment we were moving out of. Her fee was reasonable and overall she did a great job. The only things we noticed were that the walls weren't cleaned fully and our shower doors were not cleaned. Other than that the house was spotless. Thank you Dora!

After the closing on the house I was purchasing was pushed back, I had no time to clean before the movers showed up. Curl Cleaning was able to handle a last minute job, get in there and do a wonderful job on everything so all I had to do was show up and unpack. It was a pure sanity saver. They kept in excellent contact throughout the process and the house was immaculate. I highly recommend them for your next job!

Working with Maid 2 B Cleaned was a breeze. Had just moved into a house and wanted a deep clean. Had the option to do a one time service instead of signing up for a contract. Crew arrived on time, did a thorough job, and was at a reasonable price. I will use them again.

Most amazing service EVER. So respectful and nice, always leave my house smelling clean and fresh. If you neglect to tell them to do something they will come right back and fix it

This was my first time using Thumbtack and DoraSparkleHome's services. Dora and Carlos did an outstanding job in performing the move-out cleaning of my rental home. They were on-time, went straight to work and cleaned a 3300 square foot house in about 4 hours. They brought their own cleaning supplies, and performed the all the cleaning tasks as outlined, including dusting ceiling fans and cleaning all cabinetry inside and out. Not only did they do a fantastic job, they did it all for a fraction of the cost other housecleaning services charge. I highly recommend DoraSparkleHome and feel that you will not be disappointed with the wonderful customer service provided.

Absolutely fantastic. One of the nicest people I’ve ever met and they cleaned our disgusting house and made it into a masterpiece. Highly recommend as they are affordable and you get paid back for the high quality work. It was a pleasure having them come and we will definitely use again.

A relatively frustrating experience, I arrived at the house to be cleaned at our agreed upon time to unlock and show him around. After 15 mins I messaged him, 15 mins later a three messages later he responded that he had gotten our appointment confused and was in another town. He did show up three hours later, I'm happy he was able to come that day. The cleaning was pretty well done, the windows were not cleaned well but I can live with that.

Chore Catchers were so great! Last minute request to our a house cleaned prior to move in- They got back to me right away and scheduled me right in- it was a Friday evening, and i’m sure less than convenient to do a 3 hour job- but they seemed happy to help! They were attentive to detail and took pride in their work- It was a huge relief to be able to move everything into a cleaned and sanitized home. they got it all. Will definitely call them again in the future when we’re due for another deep clean 🧽

They did such a wonderful job and for a very reasonable price. My house looks like the day I got it if not better! Colson was so kind and flexible with me when I needed to reschedule. So nice to not have to worry about cleaning after moving and I’m sure our landlord will be thrilled.
